Headline It's let down by shoddy production, which has resulted in a ripple-like screen effect on some units

We had very high hopes for the Archos 80 G9. The French firm has arguably done all of the hard work with this product -- dual-core CPU, Android Honeycomb, HDMI-out functionality and the ability to upgrade to 3G at a later date -- but has dropped the ball when it comes to case design and quality control. The ripple-like effect on the display meant the Archos 80 G9 we reviewed couldn't be held without the screen resembling a pond during a fierce downpour. During our review period we tried as hard as we could to ignore the issue, but it's almost impossible to do so.
